365: Repeat the Year: 5 things that could happen next week, from the most plausible to the most outrageous

- No Seob and Jae Young get killed by the murderer, saving the leads and Shin for the finale week.
- Sun Ho is suspected of being the murderer but gets killed before Hyung Joo can confront him, fulfilling the fate in the previous timeline.
- Shin reveals the truth behind the resets: her daughter and the murderer were killed in the train accident and she is finding the murderer so as to avert their fates, showing her as being similar to Jung Tae in that they were willing to do anything for their own family.
- Ga Hyun’s assistant comes over to her workplace and finds the bloody raincoat Jung Tae’s murderer wore gets stabbed by Ga Hyun, exposing her as the hidden killer.
- Hyung Joo is revealed to be the person collecting all the items in the cliffhanger and he makes a phone call to Ga Hyun praising her for all the good work done, blowing the minds of the all the viewers.

What are your 5 things? Have fun with your imagination :P

Nector of life - Forex and stock market.
This is also part of addiction. You can be an addict of anything.
Looking at pairs, then charts, then indicators, making strategies, following strategies - achieving results is what makes you happy. Profit n money is mere a tool of happiness.
Markets run on sentiments. Price show the emotions of traders and investors. So when you view brings good outcome i.e you are able to connect with 1000 others and moving steadily in 1 clear direction.

People call Stock Market as a virtual gambling den. What a way to demean all the hard+smart work of 1000s of people out there. For an outsider it does look like a place where flase hopes are build and people deceived but once you step up and start learning you get that how much knowledge, how much resources each part holds.

Stock Market is real time entertainment that encompass all human feelings and emotions.

My assumption was 75k-100k by april and now we strongly going for 175k by april. wow. Such a strong trend.
I like short stories - In this story humans are treated as numbers. So 1 no-more or 1 million no-more - it doesn't make an impact on you because they are just numbers.
Now if you have to see visuals of 1 million no-more at the battle field? That surely gonna leave an impact.
1.5 million i said for real stat - it doesn't make any virbation in heart.
1.5 million Humans - having loved ones - surely leaving the place made impact in their society and families.
Still, 1.5 million is just a stat for most of us. A stat the open our eyes and might change us to look at governance in different way.

It’s really hard to actually imagine numbers as people once they get to that scale. 1.5 million people in my country would be over 1/5 of the population.

I mentioned it in 2019 too - I never used F word in my whole life.
The virtual identities associated with me did use F word for a few times.
Blogging/comments/posts all of are just jumble of words that loose value within day in the ocean of ubiquitous data.
The things you think are just physically represented by thrse digital words. So if you keep using F-word online then some day or other you will use it in real world too. So i kept of removing words from vocab. So far done quite well.

Every around you use lots and lots of words part of foul language(now less or more accepted) by all. That's their way of expression. Nothing wrong or bad about it. As simple as that.

hello! it’s been a while since i went on this site. got caught up with school and quarantine issues (grad postponed, ball postponed, late release of college exam results) but i’m glad to say i’m still alive!

i’m just wondering about two things:

1. what are some good on going kdramas right now? i tried a piece of your mind because of chae soo bin and jung hae in’s chemistry in the teasers but ep1-4 was boring :( i’m not sure if i should continue it

2. thinking of doing an online job while on quarantine to save up some money (preferably writing or encoding) but i don’t know where to start. any suggestions?

i’m glad to be back here! i’ll be active more often now :)

In terms of current kdrama romances, I'm enjoying I'll See You When the Weather is Fine (or whatever it is called ). It has a slow start, but if you are patient it actually breaks the mold in some interesting ways - I have never seen a FL lead ask the ML to sleep with her, and to have her be the more experienced and assured partner, and to have this treated as sweet and normal - this is a first for me in about 15 years of kdrama watching.

For online jobs, you might try Virtual Vocations, they have a lot of short-term online work.

People's tastes differ wildly. One person may recommend the dark noir thriller 'How To Buy A Friend' while another may recommend the light and frothy 'Welcome/Meow The Secret Boy'.

I agree with skelly, although, I never found it particularly slow. Probably bc I actually friggin love winter and small towns away from the hustle and bustle of the city or suburbia, so this drama just makes me feel cozy. (The scenery in this drama is AMAZIIING if youre into that) And I love both of the leads. Both have wonderful personalities, imo. I'd befriend them IRL. But I can definitely understand why some wouldn't like it, it's not a super rom com, but also not a thriller or whatever. I enjoy that the problems the characters face are actually realistic, quite common, and are portrayed in a realistic way. Feels relatable. But that's just me.

Well, if you are looking for some fluffy romance, one of my all-time faves is Queen In-Hyun's Man, if you can find it. I also binge-watched the Taiwanese drama Bromance - perfect escapism. If you want something a little more action-packed or thoughtful, both my husband and I really liked Signal. If you are into high-tech and/or powerful female leads, there's WWW:Search.

I just finished CLOY. From the moment she landed, I was anxious about how their love would work. I just breezed in through the episodes, taking in all it has, not rationalizing or anything. And the ending is just so heartbreakingly wonderful. It was a difficult love from the start. This must be what living in the moment means. Sigh.

'Binge' implies already finished so let me pick a recent favorite. One bright spot in this year of badly written dramas was the bizarre comedy 'Psychopath Diary'. Once you've settled in and accepted the absurd premise is great fun. One of the few K-drama people were totally happy with the finale.

I strongly vote for Be Melodramatic, what a fantastic little gem of a drama. Loved every second of it, and that’s a rare thing in a kdrama not to have a single moment of slack. And all of the leads and second leads have such strong story lines. Don’t even get me started on the acting. Feel in love ei Th all the actors again. Honestly can’t praise this drama enough. Hope you give it a watch 😊

Happy Weekend Beanies!

I thought that this pandemic quarantine would be a perk for wrongly accused fugitives like me, but on the contrary, it seems like I have made more enemies.😤Since the beginning of this week two gents named Kyung-Nam and Do-Hwan have been looking for me for some royal matter and I have a very bad feeling about this. 😱

I acknowledge that it must be hard for you law-abiding Beanies to keep my location a secret from the authorities, and my gratitude knows no boundaries. However, I must request once again not to tattle on me.🤐 Engage with those gents as much as you like at your own risk, but pretend you do not know me for the next eight weeks or so.😉

Keep Beaning On!

I am staying at home while occasionally working from home from some years and I'll say the distinction between work time and home/relaxation time becomes blurry. At times I find myself working 12 to 13 plus hours and think that people going to offices atleast have fixed timings for offices-overwork is a thing but at home everything is intertwined and you never relax. Regarding the days, welp is it Friday already? Wasn't it Tuesday yesterday?

I raise and release monarch butterflies during monarch season. Gallons of bleach and canisters of disinfectant swipes are used for sanitizing. A week or two before things went crazy, local Target had a 30% off bleach clearance sale. I bought 10 gallons. On the same day, another store had a store-wide discount so I also bought extra disinfectant wipes too. Got lucky.

This past Monday, stores I went to still had white vinegar and cleaning vinegar stocked. Both I usually keep extra.

Only have one bottle of XO Cognac but have several bottles of 20 to 30-yr old whiskey. Still good for last-resort disinfecting?

Chae Soo Bin is the latest actress offered a part in “The Pirates 2."

Her agency stated, “[Chae Soo Bin] has received a casting offer for ‘The Pirates 2’ and is currently reviewing it with a favorable outlook.”

Lee Kwang Soo, Kang Ha Neul, Han Hyo Joo, and Kwon Sang Woo are also currently "in talks to star" in the sequel, which was scheduled to begin filming in July.

I find it interesting that this sequel has been in the news literally for years. When the original cast declined, there have been an assembly line of public reports of actor offers. But no one has accepted any major role.

I know that production companies use these public offers to drum up public interest and investor commitments. But it seems this sequel has been treading water for a long time. With film productions generally on hold, it is hard to fund and cast movies. I understand that part of the delay in top actors accepting a movie role is the production budget and proof of production funds (since actors in movies are paid in advance while k-drama actors are paid after an episode is aired on TV).

I have never been a real fan of sequels, because the vast majority are weaker than the original film. The media buzz has more traction than the actual production.

I still cannot stand most Chinese dramas, such over the top acrobatics and plot holes. Been watching a few J-dramas, but so many of those just don't have the edginess of k-drama, too watered down. Married seems to be only available on the pirate sites - Netflix supposed to get it (maybe) after the series finish, but Viki also has it listed as "coming soon" (which often mean not for a long time).

Happy Friday Beanies!!

I am officially done with exams and can now watch everything guilt-free. Yay me!

I've been sneaking in some drama watching so I don't have a lot to catch up on. Hi, Bye Mama has been good so far and I like how it hasn't been beating us over the head with how there's one way of grieving how there should be a certain amount of grieving before one moves on. I hope Yuri ascends. There was a time when it made me sad to think of Min-jeong divorcing Kang-hwa but I think I'd be ok if they went that route. There's a child to think of though so they might not make her go through with it if Yuri does descend in the end.

I didn't go into Hospital playlist expecting anything so I'm ok with whatever they throw at me. I enjoy the episodes as they are and I love the gang and their parents. I feel like I don't know enough about the peripheral characters to love them but I like Dr. Ahn. I don't know if the male twin will survive working in pedes. He looks like the fragile sort. I don't have any particular ship I want to sail although I think Ik-sun and Joon-wan are adorable. I like the everyday lives feel of the drama so I'm not too disappointed that there is no plot...a tangible storyline so to speak.

Weather continues to be my calming happy pill every week. Aunt's storyline this week was particularly heartbreaking. She may not have been the one carted off to jail but she has been living in prison if not hell this whole time. She killed a man. Her sister went to jail for it. I wonder if that's something one ever comes to terms with. Hae-won's mom is me. Prickly pear but would take the bullet for a loved one, wrong or not. I think she cares for her family. She would just rather chew glass than actually say it. Hae-won's world just turned topsy turvy and I'm sad for her. How do you even begin to make sense of that? I do think she needed to know...maybe...I keep changing my mind. There might something in that whole "The truth will set you free" business. So maybe she didn't need to know but Aunt needed to say it. Maybe Aunt should have said it to a tomato plant instead, or a tree. Now everyone is sad.

Also, I'm feeling chatty and I don't know how I feel about that. Maybe it'll pass. Stay safe and be kind and all that. The world's gone yumpy.

I been binge watching Find Me In Your Memory ever since I came across an episode (Episode 8) recently. I was taken aback by the beautiful cinematography.

So far, I been really liking the slower pace and it reminds me of a tvN drama in a good way! The romance shows that tvN does well! Not the most exciting show, but I like the slow burn of the two main leads romance together.

It's an interesting character study, and I found myself captivated because of the performances. Particularly the male lead played by Kim Dong Wook who is such a compelling and great actor, can I get more romance dramas from him next?? If anything it showcases his vast talents, he is such a great actor and the more you see him in motion the more attractive he gets. Moon Ga Young gives her character a good amount of heart and sincerity, but she does have a backbone. They are good contrasts to each other.

Overall, minus the stalker storyline this show has likable characters and its not heavy handed thank god. Everything flows quite nicely, and as of now I haven't rolled my eyes at the screen. I hope we can get a series review when this finishes on here!

Hello all.

365: Repeat the Year 13-16 (MBC)-- well, that was an interesting cliffhanger. Am not really a fan of smirky superior villains. I guess it's that smirkiness that makes us hate them but aargh, they're intolerable.

I'll Find You on a Beautiful Day -- Am fearing a sad ending
A Piece of Your Mind -- gotta catch up. I fear sorrow i can't deal with.
Find Me in Your Memory -- This hits my sweet spot in so many way. Am not trusting the therapist's dad.
The Story of Kang Gu -- I think i've seen this plot before. LDW is so dang handsome with a little more weight on.
Awaiting with great anticipation:
Once Again -- because my LSH crush runs deep.
The King: Eternal Monarch -- coz i'm a sucker for speculative stories.

Keep safe, everyone.

Hello, stopping by to greet all the beanies and read up on this week’ s drama, Korean and otherwise. Such a ca-razy world! Hoping to get out and about (walking) with better weather this weekend. Lots of snow not too far from here, goodbye winter, really! I also got out my paints, it’s been a while since I’ve prepared a canvas and I’m considering subject matter. I have a small easel that I can set up in a corner, so ...hoping for some inspiration!
I loved When the Weather 12&13, it’s filled with such sad situations of loneliness because of abuse and abandonment. The drama doesn’t push off the lifelong consequences each of the characters deals with . It hurts to watch their pain.
I’d write more but Lee Min Ho is calling ~ and I must go!
❤️🦉

I wasn't going to write anything on OT this week, but then I read that Joo Ji Hoon is going to be in Mount Jiri?? Goodness me! This drama is from Kim Eun Hee! granted, i don't watch Signal (I plan to, but never found time) but I looove Sign (2011), so oh my oh my, a show penned by a fave writer, with a fave actor, I soo look forward to it, I even felt a little psychic now, that I am a bit scared, haha..anyhow, it's still a quarantined time in most countries I believe, so stay healthy and stay safe beanies, we can get through this tough time!

So I’ve been watching Emergency Couple and I have noticed something about Choi Jin Hyuk that I cannot un-notice.....

He looks like young Stephen Fry (if young Stephen Fry were Korean and with muscles).*

Tell me it’s just me 😅 it’s so distracting

I've never seen a link posted here. This is an experiment.
A Korean film long ago led me to K-dramas. K-dramas introduced me to series OSTs, which then led meto K-pop, which finally led me to Se So Neon's 'Midnight train':

*The King: Eternal Monarch*: Just watched Episode 2 (Not a spoiler concerning plot, just a PPT) ... Having Netflix product placement on a Netflix show, what an interesting match ...
(I know it is an SBS show in Korea, but it's still fun)

so i'm making a seperate post for THE KING cuz i have a lot to say... here goes:
im watching the king yes, but no offense. so far its really the epitomy of all the kdrama tropes put into one:
Lee min ho plays a rich untouchable guy who witnessed some close family member kill his father as a child, but his life is saved by some mysterious person who dissapears but happens to leave a trail of some pretty girl who the main lead proceeds to fall in love with.
Then 20 years later he happens upon some unfortunate situation where he stumbles into the girl and keeps finding excuses to be with her and like since he is helplessly in love with her he keeps smooth talking her.
The girl plays a really strong 'girl crush' character and knows nothing about the main guy but since hes good looking and stuff she decides to help him and starts falling for him even though he could literally be a criminal for all she knows.
And as usual there is the best friend loyal character and the third wheel female character and the evil character who somehow is still alive so that the main lead can get revenge.
like seriously?
i say all this but i'm going to watch this anyway. but like i dont know what kind of hopes to have for it? like so far it just seems to be running on the pretty main leads and the new concept, but the story telling has a lot of loop holes and just i dont see any chemistry between the leads like it would have made so much more sense for lee min ho to go looking for how he got into the world and for him to at least try and understand how kim go eun is releated to the person who saved his life or whatever, but instead we got two episodes of him acting the fool and trying to win over kim go eun and for some reason she is falling for him? like whyyyy???? far all she knows hes an illeagall immigrant who stole a horse. like build a story let the chemistry and romance follow. like woo do hwan and that other girl seem to be doing that. thats cute and makes sense. idk man idk.

drama updateeeeee
1. '365: repeat the year' is doing a decently good job of giving all the characters a chance to play the bad guy but honestly i think the unique charm of the mystery is slightly lost, like the mystery exists but i kind of just want to fast forward to the last episode to see what happens. I'm not as invested in it as i was in the beginning but its good
2. 'Memorist' is a drama i'm truly loving, like 365 its giving a lot of the characters a chance to be the bad guy but i think they do a better job of building suspense and the intensity of the drama remains even though its close to finale week. I REALLY WANT SOME CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THE MAIN LEADS NOWWW
3. I am loving 'A couples world' like perfect story writing, perfect acting, perfect character development, perfect intensity, everything works I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT
4. 'Hi bye mama' gets a bye from me, i didnt watch the finals week episodes mostly cuz i lost interest sorry
5. 'HOW TO BUY A FRIEND' literally best short drama i have ever seen (second only to 'if we were a season') good writing, good acting, good high school drama
6. last and maybe least 'THE KING'. so for its just a lot of kdrama tropes put in one. i dont know what kind of hopes to have for it? like it just seems to be running on the pretty main leads faces and the new concept, but the story telling has a lot of loop holes and just i dont see any chemistry between the leads like it would have made so much more sense for lee min ho to go looking for how he got into the world and for him to at least try and understand how kim go eun is releated to the person who saved his life or whatever, but instead we got two episodes of him acting the fool and trying to win over kim go eun and for some reason she is falling for him? like whyyyy???? far all she knows hes an illeagall immigrant who stole a horse. like build a story let the chemistry and romance follow. like woo do hwan and that other girl seem to be doing that. thats cute and makes sense. idk really how its gonna go
lmk what you guys thinkkk

Please help! This is the largest community of international Kdrama fans I know. Anyone here from Germany? I just very recently moved here and made a stupid mistake of streaming Kdrama (about 5 episodes) in dramacool. Now I am worried of being fined... I was familiar about the law about illegal downloading and torrents but got over my head and made myself believe streaming is entirely different. Until of course someone pointed out that it is not. No judgements please! Kdrama got the best out of my brain. Would anyone know about the implications of streaming via dramacool or kissasian? Not asking so I could go around it. I am just so confused right now I want to know what I am faving here. Thanks.

As someone who has streamed A LOT of kdramas from all of the sites that you've mentioned, I think that you should be okay in regards to fines. I'm in NZ, so the laws might be a lil bit different, but I've been A-OK so far. I think you'll be fine. :)
